A quick weekend project for my wife’s ceramic studio
A guy from work gave me this old 2’ x 4’ x 1.75” maple tabletop and it was the exact size for an old table we had
It was stained, worn on one half and the varnish was peeling from years of work
I cut it in half, planed it, re-glued, sanded and applied two coats of Danish Oil Finish
I then mounted the top to an old set of legs from another table and painted them black

Very nice re-purposing. Free is great!

It’s not like my woodworking bench but it does the trick for light duty
It’s all hardwood (legs, skirt and corner brace and top)
At one time the table top was plywood and slate for wedging clay but after 15 years it warped so we removed it
This table will now be used for mixing clay bodies and weighing etc

Beautiful work bench! Who would have thought it’s from an old worn out table. Great job and lucky wife!
